After a disappointing mini-tour in Kuusamo, Finland's Aino-Kaisa Saarinen underwent a series of tests to try and understand her results. From those tests she was able to determine that she has good fitness and has trained well, but that her muscles are tired and weary. She is only getting half of their capacity resulting in a finish in Ruka that was below her expectations. The good news is that all she needs it some rest, and the results will come. *Saarinen was due to travel to Canmore for the World Cups just over one week away but instead will rest. It is still unknown whether she will start the Tour de Ski.
